Deschamps, a World Cup victor with France in 1998, will be thanking his lucky stars after a performance which will give him more questions than answers about his ambitious side - the second-youngest in the tournament after Nigeria.
"That is great news for his club and for France, too", said Deschamps.
However, a moment of brilliant link up and inspiration between Pogba and Giroud ensured that a looped-in ball that needed goal-line technology to verify ensured that France won the game 2-1 in the 80 minute itself.
"Two things that come to mind are Antoine's loyalty and commitment to Atletico", added the France boss. The body language (seemed to suggest) was that he didn't know, from my position.
All-Star Kawhi Leonard Looking to Leave Spurs and Join Lakers
The bombshell report comes a day after Tim Duncan and Popovich reportedly met with Leonard in NY to convince him to come back. Leonard will have to be traded by next Thursday, the day of the 2018 NBA Draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers are to trade for him.
Griezmann admitted that pressure surrounding the French team, with seven players out of the 11 starters having never played in a World Cup before, was intense.
Under the VAR regulations, replays can only be used to assist referees in the case of a "clear and obvious error" rather than assisting officials to make correct decisions for matters of interpretation. Let's say from 10 people, seven say penalty and three say no penalty.
Unsurprisingly, France's coach Didier Deschamps took a different slant. Paul Pogba poked toward goal, the ball deflected off the boot of Australia's Aziz Behich and looped into the crossbar before falling centimetres over the line.
"Everybody is talking about the VAR but for me it's the start and we have to learn a lot about this system", he said.
The Latest on Trump and North Korea
On Wednesday the USA military was looking at ways to ensure American forces in South Korea could still be fully trained and ready. Trump's comments came as he talked about his relationship with Kim following a summit between the pair on nuclear disarmament.
One of the main takeaways for the 1998 World Cup and 2000 European Championship-winning former captain is that he youthful starting XI, France's youngest in an opening match at that level since 1930, needs more experience.
For whatever reason, the VAR never intervened to suggest Marciniak should review his decision - confusing fans who had also watched the Australian game.
"It was a hard match, it was complicated and the Australian team were very good". They're a proud side who play with passion, and I've been told there's 30,000 Peruvians in Moscow. At least, we. deserved to play a draw'.
VAR was on hand again as Peru were awarded a penalty in their game against Denmark.
